F&N Magnolia Taro iPad Magic

F&N Magnolia Taro iPad Magic

It is super fun to create magic for brands. Some time back, I was involved in creating iPad Magic for F&N Magnolia’s Taro Milk. The idea was to incorporate street magic and iPad Magic.

We hit the streets in Orchard Road and did several magic pieces for the passer-bys. We even manage to get a crowd for some of the acts.

At the end of the project, we managed to get 132K Views and 126 Shares on Facebook! This is a huge success for the client and for myself :)

Try the milk! While stocks last!

Thailand Pattaya: iPad Magic for Mitsubishi Warriors!

iPad Magic Asia Tour

The last leg of my iPad Magic Asia Tour brought me to Thailand, Pattaya where I got to perform for the agents of Mitsubishi India.

It was truly a delight to be flown to Thailand for my magic.

One of the amazing discoveries doing international performances is to find out that the different cultures react differently to magic. I was quick to adapt and that enabled me to successfully engage the audiences with my magic.

HSBC Women's Golf Championship: How I did not get to meet Michelle Wie

HSBC Womens Golf iPad Magic

If you have been following the golf championships, you would know the name, Michelle Wie. She was the Champion in 2018.

I was booked for the gala reception before the matches for 2019, and I really wanted to meet her. In fact, for this event I created something special featuring Michelle Wie. See it on my Instagram here!

Though I did not get to meet her, it was a wonderful evening of sharing my magic with the wonderful golf enthusiast and golfers!

iPad Magic Entertainment: ATAC (Australian Travel Agents Co-operative)

Some time back, I did a wonderful event for ATAC (Australian Travel Agents Co-operative). It was a dinner held in Gardens by the Bay and the restaurant housed the delightful travel agents from Australia.

For this engagement, I was asked to interact and engage the guests with my iPad Magic. They also wanted me to make a small gift appear at the end of the performance.

I had so much fun bantering and interacting with the guests through my iPad Magic. It is a pleasure to be able to bring smiles and laughter to these guests from Australia.

Thank you very much for having me! It was a joy performing at this Australian Conference!

Truly Singaporean Brand: TWG's Anniversary Party

I have always held TWG in high regards because they are the case study I would study in my Marketing 101 when I was an undergrad. A truly Singaporean brand, shining across the world, internationally. What a dream if I could one day be like them!

Back to the event, the event was held in Zouk, amd TWG had their extravagant anniversary party last week where I was invited to perform.

The guests consisted of theco-founders in TWG, Mr Taha Bouqdib, Ms Maranda Barnes and Mr Rith Aum-Stievenard. Also present was the CEO of OSIM Mr Ron Sim. It was a delight to be able to present my iPad Magic for them and their colleagues.

At the end of the performance, Mr Taha Bouqdib came by to tell me that it was a great show and everyone loved it! It was a great moment to be affirmed by someone of such affluence.

Thereafter I unbashingly asked for a selfie with him which he happily obliged to.

The night was made even greater when I left the club and bumped into Mr Ron Sim. He then also told me that he really enjoyed the show :)

It was a wonderful night to be able to perform my iPad Magic and soak in the presence of a great Singaporean success story!

My Magic, My Gift

My Magic, My Gift

For some, magic is a tool to break the ice or pick up girls. For me, my magic is a gift. It is a gift that allows me to connect with people of all ages and demographics. 

iPad Magic Alexander Yuen

Last Friday, Hari Raya, I was asked to do a show for the less fortune at the Istana. I instantly agreed. While the usual corporate international shows are great (together with the fancy hotel suites and cocktails), its always a privilege to offer my magic to those who might not had the chance to experience it. 

When I performed my magic for the audiences, it bridged an instant connection between myself and them, we are on the same page and we know that we are both going to experience something wonderful and amazing. 

I am really glad I was able to rope in The Strangers and Joel to be a part of their experience. They performed wonderful close up magic for them and brought joy to them.

At the end of our performance, we were also had a chat with Mdm President Halimah and First Gentleman, Mr Mohammad.

Here is a short footage of my iPad Magic at the Istana. Have a glimpse of how the West Drawing Room looks like:

It was truly truly a special thing to give our time and talents for those who have lack moments of wonder, or those who no longer believe in magic. As magicians, we must never forget that.

Imagination and the Child

Imagination and the Child

Seems like an odd title to use for a blog post isn't it? Let me dwell more into this since this this post was inspired by a recent performance I did.

It was not my usual high-end corporate event, it was a 9 year old boy's birthday party. For the most parts, I always reject birthday parties for children because my show is not a kids magic show where children would be screaming and laughing at colorful, silly things.

However, I took up this party because the boy's mom tried really hard to convince me that her son is a huge fan of my magic, and had watched all my videos and would be so so happy if I could come to his birthday party to perform. While I was not fully convinced that I would have a "huge fan", I really wanted to also meet the boy who sat through "all" my videos.

I met the pleasant birthday boy, he was very polite and well mannered. I could see his face light up every time something amazing happened. I could see that in his mind, he was imagining the endless possibilities that magic could bring. It was a beautiful moment for me.

When I went to my 3rd act, this boy literally recited the lines I had for that piece of magic even before I said it. I was impressed and honestly quite surprised. This boy did watch all my videos and even memorized some of the lines to heart :)

At the end of my show, I gave him the lightbulb that I made appear from the iPad. He held it in his hands as if it was a fragile bird, with great care.

And I know that if I could inspire one child to innovate and never stop imagining, the future would be a brighter place. 

Here is what his mother had to say at the end of the performance:

"Dear Alexander

Thank you for your kind text, really appreciated and we were all enthusiastic about your show, kids, in particular P, spoke about your talent with everybody until evening. For sure next time we’ll do a show for adults, we’re thinking at a private event at home with all our friends so I’ll be delighted to keep in touch with you. Congratulations again and thank you for making P’s birthday party a special and magic moment for all of us"

Always a special thing to bring joy for a child of all ages. 

 

Yours sincerely,

Alexander Yuen

Booked by International Luxury Brands: iPad Magic for Moet & Chandon

Booked by International Luxury Brands: iPad Magic for Moet & Chandon

Peers and laymen often ask me how I get booked by luxury brands like LVMH, Kenzo, Heineken, F1 Paddock Suite, Hennessy, Roger Dubuis, Mercedes Benz and most recently, Moet and Chandon.  

The truth is, I work really hard on creating original content and present them in a manner as original as possible. When compared to other magicians who are trying to intimate the same thing, these discerning high end brands have a keen eye on originality. 

There is no easy way to stay original, more often than not, young magicians who have just started out often copy successful magicians. While they might claim to be original by changing superficial features of their act, like the color of the prop, the bulk of their work is stolen (or as they claim, inspired by) from their predecessors. 

In contrast, it is an uphill challenge to create and innovate being the first-mover, since it is so much easier to copy and intimate the works off the originator. 

Despite these challenges, I have been very fortunate that the high-end brands still recognizes the quality of my work and trust me with their prestigious products for a magic launch. Most recently, I was flown to Colombo to do a session for Moet & Chandon's prestigious guests comprising of the top executives of Hennessy and Moet & Chadon, Socialites and Media.

The event was a huge success with an the guests were left with an experience like no other. They even requested for an encore performance at the end of the night which I abide to.

This event was also covered by the local newspapers like The Sunday Times and Esteem Magazine with a special mention of my magic.

All in all, more than just having original materials, I can pat myself on the back for doing a fantastic job. Here is a raving review from the organizer herself:

"Dear Alexander,
Hope you landed safely in Singapore. Just wanted to say THANK YOU. You were the star at our event and our guests absolutely loved you. Your performance was a total hit in Colombo and we have had three inquiries this morning!
Thank You Alexander. Even the media was thrilled to interview you and they called us this morning and complimented your act. We will try secure more events for you in the near future and be in touch with your shortly.
Once again THANK YOU! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and we look forward to seeing you again in Sri Lanka in the near future.
Warm regards,
Organizer of the Moet & Chandon Event"
 

So it does pay to innovate and be original ;)
